The name “A Million Pieces” was actually inspired by the chorus of “Laserbeams,” the first single from the up-and-coming LA band’s self-titled EP (iTunes). For more information and updates from the fun-loving group, visitAMillionPiecesMusic.com and find them onFacebook andTwitter.

Fearlessly autobiographical songs, a scorching live show, and a genuine bond of brotherhood: Morgan Freed (lead vocals/guitar); Peter Vanderloos (guitar/vocals); Ryan Brown (bass) and Stephen Soss (piano and assorted instruments) are A Million Pieces.

While the band might describe what they do as edgy pop music with attitude, there is an illumination to their music and their lives. Were not dark and mysterious, were honest, Peter says. We like to laugh, have fun and be idiots. Were serious 10 percent of the time. The bands name is extracted from a set of lyrics penned by Morgan. You see I feel like Im a million pieces/And when you see youre seeing laser beams. That said, these beams are now focused on a band united by power, professionalism and progress. Its not like I can preach to someone, says Peter. Our lives have gotten 180 degrees better, and were growing everyday, but were not perfect. Were honest.

As this honesty inspires songs, so does it fuel performances. Were in the business for the time we are on stage performing live for our audience, and thats what we do all this shit for, says Peter Vanderloos. And its worth it.
